When 8-year-old Camdyn Clancy learned he had a chance to go to Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, he got goosebumps every time he thought about it. A trip to New York City meant he was one step closer to having his big dream become a reality.
However, the flight from Alaska to the Big Apple wasn’t just for show as being a finalist for the NFL Play 60 Contest. Young Camdyn was actually the big winner to be the NFL’s Kid Correspondent and was surprised on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday by Michael Strahan and Robin Roberts.
Needless to say, his reaction was priceless.
For winning the contest, Clancy, an Alaska boy who plays quarterback for his youth football team, was awarded an appearance on GMA, was given the title “NFL Play 60 Super Kid,” earned tickets to the Super Bowl at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium on February 3, and received a surprise from his favorite player, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett as well as team mascot, Blitz the Seahawk.
“Thanks for cheering us on from Alaska,” Lockett said to the young fan in a video message. “I sent you a jersey to represent the 12s. Have a great time, and I hope to see you in Atlanta. Go Hawks!”
Additionally, Camdyn will get behind-the-scenes access to players, coaches, and fans during the week before standing on the sideline to cover the biggest football game of the year.
Camdyn got some practice in immediately with Strahan, the Pro Football Hall of Famer turned television host, too.
This was a day Camdyn Clancy will always remember. Chances are he will have a few more in the coming weeks as the NFL Kid Correspondent during the week of the Super Bowl in Georgia.
